Figure drawing on Toned Paper

This is a figure drawing of Rosemary was finished in about 20 hours on Stonehenge paper toned with Nu-Pastel.
  I lightly blocked in the entire figure with sepia lead and developed the contour. Next I lifted the chalk with for the lights with a knead-able eraser and cross-hatched with the sepia lead for additional form shadows and dark lights.

A few weeks ago I began a mostly self guided ecorche project in order to advance my knowledge of human anatomy.

There are not many students to talk to during the summer break.  Sometimes it's just me and Harvey in the loft.

Argos Studio Drawing Group

After some time in New Mexico I decided to branch out and spend a Saturday at Eli Levin's drawing group (This group originated in 1969).  This is the result of the six hour session.  Hopefully this will keep me from getting rusty before Ryder Studio workshops begin.

I know it sounds kind of cheeky, but I want to title this "You can leave your hat on".
